Pennsylvania Libertarians Applaud U.S. District Court’s Ruling on Ballot Access
Citizens of the Commonwealth deserve choice at the ballot box, but it seems that the old parties will stop at nothing to prevent that from happening. During the 2012 election cycle, the LPPA, in conjunction with the national Libertarian Party, fought off a nine-week challenge to its slate of candidates — all designed to reduce voter choice and keep smaller government off the ballot.
Press Release: And George Brown Makes Three!
Not being a candidate for mayor now means that for me to help my city, I need to be able to discuss the ideas that I developed with those candidates who won the primary election. I promise to support the candidate who gives my ideas their best airing and who permits me to explain the advantages in as many meetings with them as it takes. So far, I regret to say, nobody has asked for a meeting with me. However, I do have a strong feeling that the requests will be coming rapidly, especially if George Brown chooses to launch a write-in campaign. A Brown write-in campaign may help the city more than it even may help George Brown.
Pennsylvania Libertarians Elect New Leadership
Members of the Libertarian Party of Pennsylvania (LPPA) elected new leadership at their 2015 Annual Convention in Bridgeport on Saturday. The new team will continue to advance the LPPA’s mission of smaller government and lower taxes as the Commonwealth — and the nation — prepare for the 2016 election cycle.
The Main Street Farmers’ Market at The Cooperage
Local food also builds and supports our local community. Research indicates that 70% of money spent at local stores stays local, while less than 20% of money spent at large chain stores remains in the local community. By supporting your local farmers and artisans, you are helping to create an economically sustainable community right here in Honesdale.
Brian Kelly offers Wilkes-Barre City a mayoral campaign wrap-up
The results of this election, in my humble opinion, suggest that either nobody in Wilkes-Barre is unhappy with its government and its handling of the issues, or that Magdalenski and Kelly have been flagged as dumb-ass buffoons for even trying to win a Democratic primary election as non-politicians in Wilkes-Barre. Thus, by reason of their insanity, a disease detected in time by the aligned voters, they were summarily identified and dealt with as only can happen in Wilkes-Barre politics.

Tony George Means Business
Councilman and mayoral candidate Tony George means business. As mayor, he plans to apply to PennDOT for Multimodal Transportation Fund grants which will substantially improve and enhance business districts in various city neighborhoods. All of these grant funds encourage and recognize the leveraging of diverse grant funds to upgrade transportation, enhance communities, improve safety, revitalize neighborhoods and create jobs. Tony George expects that all City Departments will have an active role in this initiative including meeting in the neighborhoods with Business District partners and stakeholders to seek their guidance and input on how best to achieve these goals.
Mayoral candidate Kelly successfully closes Soapbox Speeches in the Park series at Miner Park
Kelly discussed his background and his plan to fight violent crime in the city. He also reiterated his call for Republicans to write him in during the primary election. Then, he took the time to remind City Council that they still have nine months left on their terms and that they should watch who they blame in the current crime blame game. Kelly asked “Is it fair they blame Mayor Leighton for everything . . . while Wilkes-Barre is blowing up from gangs and drugs and thugs? Where are their solutions?”
